Vampire Survivors Gets New Heroes, Weapons in Latest Free Update (and a Final Fantasy 7-Themed Trailer)

Vampire Survivors - Tides of the Foscari_04

Developer Poncle has released a new free update for bullet heaven game Vampire Survivors. The update, titled Space54, brings with it 2 new characters, 4 weapons, 1 stage and 1 relic, and is available on PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Android and iOS. The update is meant to celebrate Vampire Survivor’s original game engine, Phaser, which uses retro sci-fi characters as its mascots.

The two new characters in the update are Bat Robbert and Space Dude. Bat Robbert’s special ability is that he gains +16 MaxHP (up to a maximum of +400) and recovers 30 percent of his health. The ability’s cooldown is reset any time he is fully healed. Space Dude, on the other hand, fires all of his weapons regardless of their cooldown every few seconds.

Alongside the update, the studio has also released a new trailer for Vampire Survivors celebrating the release of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. The trailer is a recreation of the original Final Fantasy 7 teaser trailer from all the way back in 1997, with every detail swapped for Vampire Survivors things. Check out both the trailer for the Space54 update, as well as the Final Fantasy 7-themed trailer below.
